KINGSTON, Jamaica -- The woman who was taken into custody last week when she turned up at Registrar General's Department in Twickenham Park, St Catherine with a stolen baby is to be charged tomorrow.

Her identity has not yet been released.

The police said she was pointed out as the baby's abductor in an identification parade today.

The baby was snatched from his mother's bed at the Victoria Jubilee Hospital on January 9.

He was found with the accused woman last Tuesday evening when she attempted to have him registered.

Following a DNA test, the one-month-old boy was on Friday reunited with his parents, Sinclair Hutton and Suzzett Whyte.
